Do you have a girl in (rising) grades 2-5? Does she have untapped interest in getting outdoors? Does she need a good group of supportive friends, perhaps even ones that do not go to her school? We believe all girls should experience our local outdoors and discover a new passion!

Join local trail runner and Girl Scout council staff, Mindy Smith, and other female trail users for a weekly summer series of getting her outdoors and on local trails! This program is for girls in (rising) grades 2-5 and with any level of experience (or untapped!) in the outdoors and with running/walking. We will stay together as a group each Tuesday and will complete anywhere from .5 to 3 miles (while working our way up to the 3 mile mark!), followed by some additional exercises and stretches, and discussion on healthy body image, self care and other topics, etc.  Each girl will get some "Girl Scout badge homework" to work on each week outside of our weekly trail runs. No girl will be left behind or left solo on the trail. 

To register, please contact Mindy Smith or call 800-672-2148. 

Please note: This series runs every Tuesday through August 7.
